MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University football coach
Rich Rodriguez has signed a contract extension through the 2013
season.
Athletic director Ed Pastilong says the extension includes 1.3
million dollars in compensation, with the opportunity for
additional money.
Rodriguez turned down a coaching offer from Alabama in December
to accept the new WVU contract.
The Mountaineers are ranked third in The Associated Press Top 25
poll and feature quarterback Pat White and running Steve Slaton,
who are both Heisman Trophy contenders. WVU defeated Western
Michigan 62-24 in the season opener last week and play at Marshall
on Saturday.
